Abstract

Our nation is a multi-ethnic nation with 55 minorities, and 53 of them use their native language. Most preparatory students will inevitably be influenced or interfered, more or less, by their native languages, cultures, customs, cognitive and non-cognitive factors. In this essay, we are going to carry out an investigation of English learning barriers of minority preparatory students and a brief discussion of its strategies, aiming to educate them to meet their own needs in preparatory teaching and provide some effective learning approaches for preparatory students.
